Glazy about pots

Cindy Big Yu Chan, my friend from John Lewis, does pottery in her spare time.

Isn’t the bowl above beautiful?

She tells me: “My influences range from beautiful ceramic and glass objects like New York artist Ted Meuhling’s work to Barbara Hepworth’ pure sculptural forms.”

“I like pottery that isn’t perfect in form. As you can see from my work – the shape doesn’t conform to a perfect circle and I like to finish it off with splashed glazes to give it an immediate feel; so you can almost feel the energy of the artist at work.”

Above is a piece inspired by Tanaka Ichi-En-So splash ink calligraphy, and the original for reference.
